Acetaminophen was used by 69% of women during pregnancy. Use of acetaminophen did not significantly increase the risk of asthma (aOR 0.76, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.53-1.10). Acetaminophen use during both the first and the third trimester was associated with a significantly reduced risk of asthma (aOR 0.59, 95% CI 0.36-0.98). There was no evidence of a dose response, and consumption greater than 10,400 mg (32 tablets) a month did not increase risk (aOR 0.99, 95% CI 0.19-5.30).

We conducted a case-control analysis using the General Practice Research Database. Cases (≥40 years) had a new diagnosis of PD between 1994 and 2009. We matched four controls to each PD case on age, sex, general practice, and index date. Use of NSAIDs, aspirin, and acetaminophen was stratified by exposure timing and duration for both cases and controls. We calculated odds ratios (OR) using conditional logistic regression. For additional analyses, the index date was brought backward 1, 2, and 3 years, respectively.

Fever is a benign process, but it is still frequently regarded as harmful. We aimed to evaluate the knowledge of parents and healthcare professionals on fever.

We conducted a survey on the work processes and working environment in 15 hospital dispensaries, and measured the concentrations of suspended particles and suspended drug ingredients using digital dust counter and high-performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), respectively. Of 25 types of powdered drugs that were frequently handled in the 15 dispensaries surveyed, 11 could be quantitatively determined.

The aim of our study was to investigate the relationship between liver antioxidant capacity and hepatic injury in the early phase of acute paracetamol intoxication in mice. Male Swiss mice were divided into groups: (1) control, that received saline, (2) paracetamol-treated group (300 mg/kg intraperitoneally). Animals were sacrificed 6, 24 and 48 h after treatment. Oxidative stress parameters were determined in blood and liver samples spectrophotometrically. Liver malondialdehyde and nitrite + nitrate level were significantly increased 6 h after paracetamol administration in comparison with control group (p < 0.05). Paracetamol induced a significant reduction in total liver superoxide dismutase (SOD) and copper/zinc SOD activity at all time intervals (p < 0.01). However, manganese SOD activity was significantly increased within 6 h (p < 0.01), while its activity progressively declined 24 and 48 h after paracetamol administration in comparison with control group (p < 0.01). Content of sulfhydryl groups in the liver was increased 24 h after paracetamol administration (p < 0.05), while its level was decreased within next 24 h when compared to control animals (p < 0.01). Our data showed that liver antioxidant capacity increases in first 24 h of paracetamol-induced liver injury were in correlation with manganese SOD activity and increase in level of sulfhydryl groups.

Cumulative morphine consumption, number of PCA demand, and boluses were higher in group P (P<.01). The amount of total morphine (in mg) used as a rescue analgesia was also higher in group P (5.06±1.0), compared with group T (2.37±0.52; P<.001). The patients who received rescue doses of morphine were 8 (32%) in group T and 18 (72%) in group P (P<.001). Duration of mechanical ventilation in group P was longer than group T (P<.01).

There is evidence to suggest that the risk of asthma might be increased with exposure to paracetamol in the intrauterine environment, infancy, later childhood and adult life.

This retrospective study was carried out in the Medicine Department of Khulna Medical College, the biggest tertiary hospital in the southern part of Bangladesh to observe the trends of poisoning in southern part of Bangladesh over four years including age and sex variation, mode of poisoning, type of poison used and outcome of poisoning. The hospital medical records of all patients, aged 10 years and above with history of acute poisoning from January, 2003 to December, 2006 were enrolled. Patients were categorized into four age group including Group (Gr.) I, Gr. II, Gr. III & Gr. IV having age range of 10-20, 21-30, 31-40 & >40 respectively. Underlying causes of poisoning were also observed totally and individually in different mode with male, female ratio and the percentage. Death cases according to mode of poisoning with demographic alignment were also observed. Statistical analysis were done using epi-info version 3.5.1 and measures were presented as proportion and percentage. Among 1903 cases, 1012 (53.1%) were male and 891 (46.8%) female with a ratio of 1.4: 1. The year wise total number of cases were progressively decreased from 627 (2003) to 353 (2006). Most commonly found toxic agent was Organo-Phosphate compound (526; 27.64%) with a very little sexual variation & this trend remained same in all study years. Poisoning with unknown substance was the second leading cause (16.03%) followed by Copper-sulphate (14.03%), Sedative (13.35%), Snakebite (12.93%) etc. Incidence of unknown poisoning, sedatives, snake-bite and corrosives were found to be gradually decreased over the study years. Male were found mostly affected in majority type of poisoning except Copper-sulphate, kerosene, puffer fish, paracetamol and other drugs category. Age group II (710; 37.3%) was the most vulnerable group with male (57.89%) preponderance followed by group I (643; 33.7%), III (329; 17.2%) and IV (221; 11.6%) respectively. Highest 1308 (68.7%) cases were suicidal in mode followed by 304 (15.9%) accidental and 291 (15.2%) homicidal. Out of 1903, 140 (7.3%) patients died. Death rate was highest in OPC poisoning (52.1%) followed by unknown substance (13.5%), snakebite and copper-sulphate (11.4%) etc. In an agro-based country like Bangladesh, it's very difficult to reduce the poisoning cases and mortality. Prospectively designed multi-centered studies are needed to reflect the epidemiological properties of poisonings throughout Bangladesh, and would be very valuable for the determination of preventive measures.

Intravenous acetaminophen given to young children undergoing primary cleft palate repair was associated with opioid-sparing effects compared to placebo. The fewer morphine doses during ward stay in both intravenous and oral may be important clinically in some settings.

We report two fatalities that are related to the cathinone 4-methylethcathinone (4-MEC) and review the current knowledge of 4-MEC. Qualitative and quantitative analysis of 4-MEC was performed by validated high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry methods. In the first case a 22-year-old male died in hospital following collapse and seizures after using 4-MEC. Toxicological analysis of postmortem femoral blood revealed the presence of 4-MEC (0.167 mg/L), ethanol (27 mg/100 mL) and paracetamol (5 mg/L). Death was attributed solely to 4-MEC toxicity. The second case involved a 54-year-old man found with a taped plastic bag over his head. Toxicological analysis of postmortem femoral blood revealed the presence of 4-MEC (1.73 mg/L) along with ethanol (229 mg/100 mL), propranolol (0.036 mg/L), venlafaxine (0.284 mg/L) and its metabolite O-desmethylvenlafaxine (0.205 mg/L), and diazepam (<0.005 mg/L) and its metabolite nordiazepam (0.033 mg/L). Death was attributed primarily to asphyxiation. These cases and a review of the current knowledge of 4-MEC pharmacology/toxicology adds to the body of case material for 4-MEC and will assist with interpretation in postmortem toxicology cases in which 4-MEC is detected.

Carica papaya Linn is used in a traditional medicine for hepatobiliary disorders. This study investigated the hepatomodulatory effects of aqueous extracts of C. papaya leaf (CPL) and unripe fruit (CPF) at doses of 100 and 300 mg/kg on carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and acetaminophen (ACM)-induced liver toxicities in rats.
